No­vem­ber 22, 1924 - Oc­to­ber 31, 2018

It is with sad­ness we an­nounce the death of Jean who died peace­fully at Sun­ny­brook’s Vet­er­ans Res­i­dence. Jean’s hus­band Ted, the love of her life, also resided at the Vet­er­ans Res­i­dence, he pre­de­ceased her on May 7, 2017. They leave be­hind their chil­dren Jim, Brian, Peter, Deb­o­rah and Mar ianne and grand­chil­dren Joshua, Jonah, Hay­ley, Adam, Ali­son and Tim.

Jean was born in Eng­land where she served in the WRENS dur­ing WWII. At the end of the war she moved to Canada ini­tially set­tling in Nova Sco­tia. She then moved to Toronto where she lived for the rest of her life, more than 55 years on Wards Is­land.

Jean was an un­sung hu­man­i­tar­ian, al­ways there to lend a help­ing hand and qui­etly do­ing acts of kind­ness for many. She had a long ca­reer work­ing in So­cial Ser­vices for the City of Toronto and in later years was very in­volved as a vol­un­teer for more than 25 years with Ron­ald McDon­ald House. Jean was true to her pas­sion to help peo­ple to the end. There­fore there will be no fu­neral as Jean is too busy help­ing at the Univer­sity of Toronto School of Medicine with re­search.

Jean was loved by many peo­ple of all ages, from all walks of life. The world was a bet­ter place with her in it and she will be greatly missed by her many friends and fam­ily. Our fam­ily would like to ac­knowl­edge the spe­cial com­pan­ion­ship of Shauna who brought so much joy into Jean’s life for the last sev­eral years which wouldn’t have been the same with­out her. We would also like to thank all the amaz­ing staff of LTSE3 at the Vet­er­ans Res­i­dence for the ex­cep­tional and lov­ing care Jean re­ceived in her time there, she al­ways felt well cared for.
